My son was "informally diagnosed" with Asperger's through his recent pre-school screening. They don't feel that he has Autism because his speech is too advanced, but he is having the social issues with other children his age and I am really confused on how to help him at home.
It says role-playing on the research I have read but I'm having trouble figuring out how to do that with a four year old. My son is sort of "overly social" he lacks the filter to know that he is over-doing it. He wants to hug and love and be everyone's best friend - especially adults.
So, any tips would be greatly appreciated. His pre-school already has an IEP and has assured me that he will be worked with but the thought of waiting until fall to have him worked with is very upsetting to me.View Thread
